    Re: Crawfish, Crawfish everywhere !!!!!

    Roger, I could be totally wrong on this as I do not have any crawfish, but this is what I have been told. The crawfish will eventually migrate to all parts of your system eventually, because the eggs, babies, whatever you want to call them are so small they easily go through your screens and get to the other areas. Make your screens to small and now you cannot keep the flow going for them stopping up all the time. I do not think crawfish would be a huge money maker in a commercial system although there does seem the possibility for some benefit to having them, so if they brought in any revenue, well that would just be extra. If I was planning a home system or hobby system, i would definitely experiment with them. I do not think it would be economically profitable to try and build a DWR trough just for crawfish. To be hones I think they would do better with the plants in there. But that is just my opinion.

    be careful how you plan your hides, you could end up with solids buildup..
    i don't think they'll end up all through the sytem like scuds do..
    economically you could make more in the aquaria trade with some of the australian crayfish which grow quite a bit larger than crays in the US....if you've done any looking at yabbies, maron or whatever the heck else they call them down under, you'll recognize the names of these (check out what they sell for!);

    it's all in how you look at it.. for a backyarder to "make money" on ap - even when scaled up to "hobby" farms, you just have to find your niche market
    set some goals and go for it

    I think you have a good point Kieth. To many rock formations in the troughs could create a problem when it comes to interrupting the flow and creating areas for STUFF to build up. I also think you are right in a small scale set up specialty markets and the pet, hobby market would be the way to go.

    My goal is not as a business venture. My goal would be a mudbugs boil once a month for me and my lady.

    I'll post an announcement the morning of the boil and please RSVP by noon so I know how many mudbugs to harvest. Any and all are welcome. The travel arrangements are on you guys. There is no parking of mules in my neighborhood.
